Event with AMPM – Associação de Mulheres com Patologia Mamária
In October, Ana participated in a discussion forum organized by an association dedicated to support women with breast pathologies. It was a wonderful afternoon! Thank you for the invitation Maria Fernanda Ventura.
Ana Teresa Maia, CBMR researcher, is participating in a pioneering study about a genetic alteration that seems to be born in Portugal, approximately two thousand years ago. This genetic alteration, responsible for the increased risk of hereditary cancer (especially breast cancer), is a mutation that researchers believe that could have been carried (by sailors, traders and emigrants) from Portugal to other parts of the world.
Note that, as Ana Teresa Maia states: “this mutation of the genes have been already identified in French and Australian families with Portuguese ancestors”.
So, the main goal of researchers seems to be understand how malignant is that mutation and how was developed in Portugal. In order to achieve that, researchers and doctors will work together, with the help of two associations – the Portuguese Association for Cancer Research and the Portuguese Association to support people with alterations in genes related to hereditary cancer.
The project, that ensures to bring unreleased revelations to the cancer field, have a solid foundation on CBMR research and specially on the research of Ana Teresa Maia on gene expression.

2nd Oncobiology Retreat
We got together againg for the 2nd Algarve Oncoretreat on the 20th of May at the Clube Nautico de Faro. All group members working on cancer at the CBMR got together to present current projects and discuss future possibilities of collaborations. Another extremely productive day, which allowed us to have a much clearer idea of the great potential of cancer research at University of Algarve. We also had a picnic at the beach and beer aftewards, which always promotes good thinking!!!!
We’ve Won!!!! 1º Prémio Maratona da Saúde

1st Algarve OncoRetreat
The 1st Algarve Oncoretreat happened on the 24th of September at the Clube Nautico de Faro. All PIs and post-doc fellows working on cancer at the CBMR got together to present current projects and discuss future possibilities of collaborations. It was an extremely productive day, which allowed us to have a much clearer idea of the great potential of cancer research at University of Algarve.
